Last weekend I experimented with cauliflower hot wings & a homemade ranch dressing. While my wings were good, they were definitely not blog-worthy but the homemade ranch dressing was REALLY good 🙂 This ranch dressing is super easy to make and is perfect for salads and a dip for chopped vegetables.
Who doesn’t love pesto? This recipe uses walnuts instead of pine nuts (gotta get those omega 3-‘s) and nutritional yeast instead of traditional cheese- perfect for anyone who doesn’t eat dairy. Grow some basil or buy a bunch at your farmer’s market or local grocer and make a batch of pesto! Whatever you don’t use you can freeze for 2- 3 months (store in freezer-proof bags or tightly sealed tupperware).
Why buy store-bought salad dressings full of preservatives and allergens when you can make your own. This red wine vinaigrette is light and a great addition to any salad.
This fresh salsa is perfect with chips, on tacos or as a salad with chopped romaine and avocado.
I have been trying to get more plant-based protein in my diet lately without soy, so I’ve been getting creative in the kitchen. This salad was so delicious, plus the ingredients are organic and locally-grown (I live in SoCal).
Stock up on avocados, tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic, limes and onions at your local farmer’s market, co-op or grocery store. Make a big bowl of guac. This guacamole recipe is delicious and really easy to make.
